Happy Thanksgiving

I hope everyone has a terrific Thanksgiving! I try every day to be thankful for my family and friends.

I am thankful for my healthy sons, my husband, our home, and my health. But, I thought it would be fun to think of some other things that I'm grateful for, that I often over look daily.

The smell of fresh laundry

A clean, neat house

A fire (in a fire place)

Pink and Green

Lilly Pulitzer

Monograms

A new dress

Laughter

When my sons are polite (without me reminding them)

Old photo albums

My fond memories of high school, college and my pre family travels

Finding an amazing new book

A great nights sleep

Jewelry

Facials

A great blow out for my hair

Getting involved in charity work, feeling like I made a difference

Blends

Exchanging smiles and pleasantries when I'm out running errands (reminds me the world is full of kind people)

  18. There are just too many things to be thankful for, aren't there? And smile as much as possible. It actually releases endorphins and seratonin into your system, which are warriors against the evil invaders of your body...
